Short story- The transition

Photo by Humphrey Muleba on

“Yesterday you were looking very beautiful, my love !!!!!!!!! I know you are stressed due to the work, your boss is a big trouble maker !!! But you don’t have to worry about him anymore!!! Also, the bracelet you brought yesterday from the mall, is very pretty but it can be very pricky, so be careful while wearing it as I can’t see you in pain, my love, I know, today your dad on call was talking about your alliance with some engineer guy, just tell him that you don’t want to marry that idiot !!!! You are only mine !! I love you so much !!! ” The message ended.

“wow, Jenny !!! Your boyfriend loves you so much !!! I wish I find someone like him too, where do you guys meet ?? Who proposed first???” I started teasing Jenny, my new roommate after reading this letter which was tucked in a huge bouquet of red roses and was kept on our balcony’s coffee table when we returned from the office.

“But I don’t have a boyfriend” she replied nervously, the visible fear in her eyes and sweat drops on her forehead was telling a different tale.

The transition from “romance” to “horror” was real quick.

  1. You are gifted Vani! Many people (including me) don’t have this ability to share a big message with so few words! Great post๐Ÿ˜ƒ

  2. The abrupt ending has shocked the reader and there lies the beauty of it. Your story-ending reminds me of ‘The Open Window’, a story by Saki. Loved it๐Ÿ‘.

  3. ๐Ÿ˜ถ. jenny be like๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜ฐ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜Ÿ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

  4. Wooooo!!! Very mysterious. I am getting too curious to know who had sent the bouquet and the letter!!! Is there a next part to the story? I am really excited!!! โค

  5. Oooh, the shock ending in this one was very powerful. Especially since in the message he said ‘you don’t have to worry about your boss anymore…’ That’s super creepy!
